About Marcia Schrock

Business Administration/Marketing at Penn State University

Owner vacation rental

Marcia Schrock purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Marcia Schrock chose Como

I love traveling and when on vacation with my family we stay in apartment rentals whenever possible. These accomodations have a more personal touch and a chance to mingle with the locals. My goal is to offer my guests exactly what I look for in a vacation rental: comfort, location and a trip that they will never forget.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A carefully renovated and spotless top floor apartment in a building with a lift, this property is very well situated only steps away from the lakefront, the old city of Como and the ferry terminal. The A/C is very effective and a lifesaver in the current temperatures. It's five minutes walk from the train terminal to Milan Cadorna. Marcia is the perfect host, never intrusive but just a text away and a fount of useful advice. We had a wonderful stay and would certainly come again - La Mansarda is very good value for money in an increasingly expensive part of the world. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. Right across the street from Lake Como and boats to everywhere.

The host was the best we have had in 3 months in Europe. Picked us up at train station, delivered us back to train station on leaving. A wealth of local information. Had e-mailed many times during our stay and got very quick response. The parks are across the street and can walk the waterfront. Not far from Dumo and funicular to top of mountain. We were able to cook most of our meals, saving us money. There is a supermarket in 2 blocks that is open 24/7, had everything you could want. Local restaurants were close and not expensive. Took local train into Milan and saw the sights there. Took boat tour to Bellagio and saw the sights on boat trip. Even took train from Como to Monza and to Turanio and the to St Moritz Switzerland and Bernnia Express, a world heritage railroad. Had blast for 8 days. Stay here.

Great visit to Como!

Marcia could not have been more gracious and welcoming after a weary travel day. The apartment is well appointed - comfortable furniture, especially the bed after a long day. The bathroom is small but hey, how much time are you spending there? It's clean and functional. The apartment's location is perfect. Everything within walking distance. We twice cooked very satisfactorily in the apt. Thank you, Marcia!

Great location, comfortable residence and lovely host.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed about ten days in Como. Walking either side of the lake is beautiful but our favorite was the right side as it takes you past the very best salads resturant and the funicular. Suggest the fast boat to mid-lake to visit the towns. We took a trip into Switzerland to see the alps, the Matterhorn and the glacier express.

The pizza below the apartment is good and if you turn left coming out the apartment door the first restaurant on the right corner is very good. We had a great time in Como. Marcia was an excellent host also providing a ride to and from the train!
